"Ever y Central Texas hiker needs to climb to the top of Enchanted Rock, the most notable landmark in this part of the state. This hike adds the first portion of the park’s Loop Trail to the summit ascent for a bracing 4-mile trek. Be prepared to visit during off times, as weekends can be so crowded that park entry is cut off."
